CINCINNATI -- A local disaster relief organization is heading to Missouri to help people who have been displaced in the wake of violent tornadoes.

Matthew 25: Ministries’ Disaster Relief Team left for Jefferson City at 8 a.m. Friday, just days after an EF-3 tornado, with winds up to 160 miles per hour, touched down in Jefferson City, Missouri. Three people died and many were trapped in their homes.

The team’s response fleet includes two panel trucks loaded with P&G personal care kits, household and cleaning products, Cintas first aid and safety kits, Pampers diapers, Charmin toilet paper, Tide Pods and tarps.

The organization’s relief coordinator will also evaluate additional areas of need and meet with partners to discuss shipments of aid.
